Connect live

We need to reconcile with the earth, weave a new relationship between us and nature, which transcends the anthropocentric vision that built a pact between men through the social contract that led over time to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which meant a substantive advance, especially for having transcended the archaic pact that we had made with the gods. This reconnection with the land has to arise from a new agreement, which is capable of empathizing with the ecosystemic relationship that weaves the fabric of life. The Urban and Peri-urban Gardens are spaces capable of helping to weave this eco-social pact, which is why they become gardens of transforming hope to co-create new forms of social organization.
